“I’m a what?”
“A werewolf.”
“A werewolf who can’t remember he’s a werewolf because he has amnesia.”

That pretty much sums it up. The timing couldn’t be worse, too. Just when the pain of booting her asshat of a husband to the curb has started to lessen, Ella gets stuck babysitting his hairy amnesiac ass. Well . . . she is a psychiatric nurse, after all. In exchange for helping Crosby rediscover his inner werewolf, Ella has the pack’s word she’ll be granted a divorce. She’ll be free to move on. Maybe continue the Twitter flirtation she’s got going with @Hairofthedog. Hey, it’s a start.

But Crosby isn’t playing fair. No longer the Grand Poobah of Douchebaggery, with his memories gone, he’s more the charming, fun-loving man Ella fell in love with. How’s she supposed to hate him when he keeps smiling and charming and, oh yeah, screwing her six ways to Sunday? Though Ella’s body is game for more physical therapy, her mind hasn’t forgotten his betrayal. Crosby will need a damn fine excuse for what he’s done.

As it turns out, he has one-and it’s a doozy.


Shannon’s Review: Crosby has amnesia. He doesn’t know who he is or that he’s even a werewolf. Ella, the beautiful, snarky woman who claims to be his babysitter, says he has to come home with her so she can help him deal with his amnesia and the ins and outs of being a werewolf. Even with his amnesia, he knows there’s something about Ella that he craves.

Ella, rushes to Crosby’s aide when she hears he’s been hurt and without his memory. She agrees to a deal with the Pack if she helps them out with the Crosby situation. She’s just not sure how she’s going to deal with the amnesiac Crosby. He may not remember her or the events of the past six months, but she does…painfully. But Crosby has a way of breaking down her barriers, especially when he’s laughing and turning the charm on her and acting very much like the man she fell in love with all those years ago.

This was an engaging, laugh-out-loud short story that left you truly wishing there was more to Crosby and Ella’s story. Ella and Crosby’s chemistry grabs you right from the very beginning and has you hoping they find their way back to a happily ever after.

Sarah’s Review: Honey I Shrunk the Werewolf is a fast paced, sexy, funny story about a guy and a girl who had a communication issue. Ella is funny and strong willed but jumped the gun too quickly and didn’t give Crosby a chance to tell his side of the situation. Crosby is definitely someone I’d want to get to know better. He’s sexy, kind hearted and loyal to the bone. The chemistry between Ella and Crosby is hella hot and not corny at all. I like the idea of @Hairofthedog as well – she really had no clue. The mystery/action element to the story is written well also. I like Cassidy’s snarky attitude when writing female protagonists. I also think she has a awesomely wicked sense of humor in her stories. The story is easy to read, fast paced and very enjoyable.
